Staff was very helpful in directing us to good hiking. Spoke English well. Room size was very generous for two. No air conditioning, but we didn't feel we needed it --even on hot days of July the town cooled off enough in the evening to wear a light jacket. I noticed some reviewers talked about how they only had a shower, while others only had a tub, in their BRs. Ours just had a tub, with a hand-held attachment that one could use to rinse hair with. Without a shower curtain or mount for the attachment, you couldn't really use it to shower. Speaking of curtains, the only ones in the bath were sheers that barely covered the windows; this made us reluctant to turn on the bathroom lights at night. And this was the first hotel I've stayed at in years that didn't have a hair dryer in the room (we searched the room, though didn't ask for one). It was ok to go out in the summer with wet hair, but seems like this would be pretty essential in the winter.
The view from the breakfast room is incredible (as was the view from our room). Really good croissants, but the fruit salad was pretty tasteless.
Internet service is available (in lobby only) at a low cost if you've brought your own computer. We just used the free wireless available outside the tourist info center (using the TICham connection). It's available even after TI is closed if you have a computer.
